Autonomous Maintenance is a maintenance strategy that focuses on empowering operators to take ownership of their equipment and perform basic maintenance tasks. It is a form of preventive maintenance that involves operators in the inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and minor repair of their equipment. Autonomous Maintenance is designed to reduce downtime, improve equipment reliability, and increase operator engagement. It is often used in combination with other maintenance strategies such as predictive and preventive maintenance. Autonomous Maintenance is also known as self-maintenance, operator-driven maintenance, or operator-initiated maintenance.
